About the book:
With player contributions and hard-hitting, outside the box, witty, and vivid explanations, The Modern Girls’ Guide to the Gridiron is a comprehensive guide to all things football for women. Whether you’re a novice fan, or a seasoned veteran, this book is sure to amp your arsenal of football knowledge — the best accessory you could wear on Game Day.
Written by sports journalist Vanessa-Franchesca “VF” Castro, The Modern Girl’s Guide to the Gridiron is an easy-to-read crash course on the ins and outs of football—rules, terminology, traditions, and history of the game—perfect for any mother wanting to connect with her sports-minded kids or husband.
“It’s written for women and encompasses everything from finance to fashion,” says Castro of the book, which while light on tone is not lax on the research that went into it or the facts presented. “I wanted to deliver the information with intensity, while keeping it as ‘to the point’ as possible,” Castro added, “So the majority of research was dissecting game film, interviews, conversations with athletes and field work.”
Football continues to grow in popularity—more people watched this year's Super Bowl than any other program in United States television history (114.4 million viewers!). While the NFL season is over, The Modern Girl’s Guide to Gridiron is the perfect read to catch moms up before football starts again in the summer.
What we thought:
We are avid football fans around here and even though I already know quite about about the game, I can't claim to know all there is:) This book will be instrumental in teaching me everything I ever wanted to know about what is, in my opinion, the greatest game ever! Castro lays it all out there in an easy to read and easy to understand format with lots of diagrams and illustrations. This book would be great for those who know nothing about the game and those who have been fans for years. I've been watching football for over 30 years and I learn something new with each chapter! I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn more about football. I figure, what better way to spend the off season than by learning more about the game, right?
